Lise Fuhr and ETNO members
join the GAIA-X event on use-cases

The telco industry represents a strong ally for the success of GAIA-X. Why so? The next generation of cloud and edge computing will be governed by the network layer, and telcos’ expertise is critical. With the right start, Europe will become a digital leader and nurture innovation across the Continent..

A telco industry coordinated approach will be key in achieving this: join Lise Fuhr, Orange, TIM, Proximus, Ericsson and many others to get the latest update on GAIA-X, with a focus on use cases and next steps. For more information and to register, click the button below.

Europe's Digital Decade - Have your say on EU Digital Principles

The Commission laid out its vision for Europe's digital transformation by 2030 in its Communication “Digital Compass: the European way for the Digital Decade“, and proposed to compile a set of digital principles.

This covers areas such as access to internet services, to a secure and trusted online environment, to digital health services and to human-centric digital public services and administration. All interested people and parties can also share their view on digital education and skills necessary for people to take an active part in society and in democratic processes, ethical principles for human centric algorithms, the protection and empowerment of children and young people in the online space or digital systems and devices that respect the environment.

They are also invited to propose alternative formulations or elaborate on other possible principles. These principles will complement existing rights that already protect and empower Europeans online such as the protection of their personal data and privacy, freedom of expression, freedom to set up and conduct a business online or the protection of their intellectual creations.
